Robinhood Crypto Revenue Falls to $51M
Robinhood’s crypto transaction revenue is down.
According to a press release, Robinhood saw its crypto transaction revenue fall 12% to $51 million in Q3 2022.
Earlier reports indicate that the firm saw $58 million in cryptocurrency transaction revenue in Q2 2022. Furthermore, the company saw cryptocurrency transaction revenue of $54 million in Q1 2022 and $88 million in Q1 2022.
Robinhood highlighted in its report that it has recently extended its crypto features. In September, the company rolled out the beta version of its self-custodied crypto wallet to the first 10,000 users on its waitlist.
The company also added support for various new assets in Q3, including Cardano (ADA), Uniswap (UNI), Stellar Lumens (XLM), and Avalanche (AVAX). Perhaps most notably, it added USDC, its first stablecoin. These new listings apparently did not drive up the company’s transaction revenue.
Robinhood’s press release does not mention less positive events that took place in Q3. In August, the New York Department of Financial Services fined the company’s crypto arm $30 million. The same month, Robinhood laid off 23% of its staff due to a weak crypto market.
Despite its cryptocurrency losses this quarter, Robinhood saw increased activity in other areas. The firm saw options revenue grow 10% to $124 million and saw equities revenue grow 7% to $31 million in Q3.
Robinhood experienced net losses of $175 million in Q3—considerably lower than its net loss of $295 million in the previous quarter. The company’s total net revenues increased 14% sequentially to $361 million in Q3.
The fact that Robinhood faced lower losses than expected has moderately benefited the value of its stock (HOOD). According to the Wall Street Journal, shares rose 1.5% after hours despite falling more than than 4% earlier.
